Reminders for 2015 race directors
From the USA Cycling Update:
With September halfway over and next year’s permitting time just around the corner, it’s time for a reminder about race director certification so you can prepare in time for permitting your 2015 events.
Some things you need to be aware of:
1) There are now two race director licenses
A stand-alone race director license for those wishing to permit without a registered club
-- When you purchase a race director license, you receive one free race director webinar
-- If you purchase a two year race director license, you receive two free race director webinars.
A complimentary club race director license for those permitting with their club
-- Given when the club contact passes a race director certification
-- Allows club race directors to permit events only for their registered club
2) Level C certification
Minimal requirement for any licensed race director to permit any type of event
Minimal requirement for any licensed club race director to permit a competitive event under a registered club
From August 1 to December 31 of 2014 anyone who completes the Level C certification will have their certification extended until December 31 of 2016 to help ease this change in policy
To maintain Level C certification only five (5) CEUs will be required - two (2) of which are required trainings, two (2) which must be USA Cycling produced education, and one (1) which can be any education related to event management
3) Level B certification
This is no longer an in-person class certification, it is a set 10 webinar curriculum
We have released two webinars already, Volunteer Management and RaceClean
If you complete this certification you will receive a financial benefit of an additional $0.10/transaction online registration rebate as part of the new volume-based year-end rebate available to race directors.
If you wish to complete the Level C certification you can find the manual and exam in your My USA Cycling account, under your account.
The next Level B webinar is Wednesday, September 24 at 4 p.m. MT and the topic is Radios for Dummies presented by Chuck Hodge.
